James Swallow – Author talks about writing prolifically across many genres

James Swallow is one of those writers who has stories burning inside him, itching to get out. He has written anything and everything. James writes sci-fi, fantasy, TV tie-ins, video games, audio dramas, and his new one is a spy thriller, ‘Rogue’. It’s about Marc Dane, an MI6 worker who usually spends time behind a desk and screen, but is thrown out into the field. We talk about how it’s a pay-off for many readers who have stuck by the series from the start. Also we chat about how he first had the idea, and what it’s like to switch between genre so frequently.


We talk about the perfect writing day, against the practical one that normally occurs. You can also hear how he acclimatised to writing full-time after finally making the leap to leave his job and tell stories for a living. We chat about what it’s like to write for yourself after so many years telling others stories, and how he knew he would be a writer from a very early age.
